Final, Card 15, The Devil

The final painting. The two monkeys at the bottom represent the primal human aspects of gluttony and sloth; the golden chest references Pandora’s Box, that held all the horrible evils of the world inside. In my version the devil is blind, as the entity threatens everyone equally. It’s open mouth releases white moths, which symbolize the spreading of potentially negative thoughts should the receiver allow them to become destructive. They also represent the idea of the moth to the flame, as in the soul being attracted towards something harmful.
